The Red Pyramid (Kane Chronicles Series #1) To all of the kids and adults who have followed the Percy Jackson and the Olympians and were dismayed when the series ended -The new series from Rick Riordan, the Kane Chronicles is even better ! Rick Riordan still performs that magic that he does so well - creating a fun storyline that takes off on the first page and characters that are believable. He makes us laugh, cry and sit at the edge of our seat . As in the last series kids will learn a great deal about mythology - this time it is Ancient Egyptian Gods trying to take over and it is up to Carter and Sadie Kane to stop them before chaos rules. Things and familiar places are not what they seem and you will love the new gods, goddesses and protectors who come alive in this book. One of the things I love about his books is the way he empowers kids who feel different or have trouble in everyday life. Both brother and sister feel disjointed and powerless because of their parents and their Egyptian alter ego gives them self confidence and special gifts. While the average 13 year old may not feel like he or she has a lot of control in their life these books will speak to them to search for their own gifts. I will have no problem recommending these books to any kids from 10 and up. Reading this series together as a family is a great way to add adventure to a quiet summer.
